A man died after being dumped into the compactor of a sanitation truck Wednesday morning.
The man was reportedly sleeping inside a trash bin in the parking lot of an O'Reilley Auto Parts store at East Lancaster Avenue and N. Hughes Avenue when a sanitation truck picked up the bin and dumped the contents, including the man, into the compactor.
As the truck crushed its load, the driver of the sanitation truck reportedly heard a man screaming.
Officials with MedStar said paramedics performed CPR on the man while transporting him to a nearby hospital.
The man underwent surgery at John Peter Smith Hospital, where he later died.
The Tarrant County Medical Examiner will determine the man's identity and cause of death.
